  Date: 12/17/1960  
  Score: 3-3  
  Alabama vs. Texas The 1960 edition of the Bluebonnet bowl was certainly an interesting one with the Tide and the Texas Longhorns playing to a 3-3 tie. The game was scoreless at halftime but in the third quarter Tommy Brooker kicked a 30 yard field goal to give Bama the 3-0 lead. Alabama had the lead until just over 3 minutes remaining when Texas tied it up. Then with 28 seconds to go Texas got the ball back and with no time remaining threw an incompletion. However interference was called on the play giving Texas one last shot for a field goal at the Alabama 18 yard line with no time remaining. The kick sailed wide to the left and Bama and Texas walked away tied. With this tie in the Bluebonnet Bowl and 1960 Crimson Tide finished the year 8-1-2 for Coach Bryant.
